This email to just got approved, so I thought I'd forward 
it here in case anyone's not subscribed to that list.

Many thanks to everyone again.

Subject: [ANNOUNCE] Apache Milagro (incubating) Crypto C & JS Libraries 1.0.0 


On behalf of the Apache Milagro (incubating) community, I'd like to announce 
our first ASF releases:

Apache Milagro Crypto C 1.0.0-incubating

milagro-crypto-c is a modern cryptographic C library that focuses on Elliptic 
Curve Cryptography but has support for legacy systems that require RSA. There 
is support for three different security levels; 128, 192 and 256 bit. It has 
been written only in C and has no external dependencies other than an entropy 
source. Measures have been taken in the code base to prevent side channel 
attacks. Pairing based cryptography (PBC) is a maturing field that has 
recently gained widespread acceptance. The library supports schemes that make 
use of PBC such as BLS for short signatures and MPIN for multi-factor 
authentication (MFA).

Release notes:

Apache Milagro Crypto JS 1.0.0-incubating

milagro-crypto-js is the JavaScript equivalent of milagro-crypto-c. It has all 
the same functionality, API and even the intermediate calculated values in the 
functions are the same.  This library allows you to run software only MFA 
(multi-factor authentication) using M-PIN in the browser which, to the best of 
our knowledge, is the only such implementation of software only MFA 
(multi-factor authentication) in this context.

Release notes:

Source distributions for both can be found here:

Please refer to each repo's README for build and test instructions.

Many thanks to all our contributors and mentors and to the IPMC for their 
input and guidance.

Apache Milagro (incubating) is an effort undergoing incubation at The Apache 
Software Foundation (ASF), sponsored by the Apache Incubator. Incubation is 
required of all newly accepted projects until a further review indicates that 
the infrastructure, communications, and decision making process have 
stabilized in a manner consistent with other successful ASF projects. While 
incubation status is not necessarily a reflection of the completeness or 
stability of the code, it does indicate that the project has yet to be fully 
endorsed by the ASF.
